st patricks day kilflynn 2024

It’s that time of year again and preparations are in full swing for our annual St Patrick’s Day parade in Kilflynn. It promises to be a day full of music, entertainment, and community spirit in celebration of our Patron Saint of Ireland – St Patrick. So get your community groups together, get practicing your music, and let’s all take part in our parade. The parade and the fancy dress parade will commence at 4.00pm sharp on Sunday 17th March from St Teresa’s National School and make its way through the village. All those interested in participating in the parade please assemble at the school at 3.30pm. Any organisations, businesses or individuals wishing to take part in this year’s parade are very welcome to do so.
Kilflynn Community Together are organising this year’s St Patrick’s Day parade and are hoping to build on last year’s success where over 25 groups took part.
Again, this year there will be a trophy and €100 for the best float, €50 for 2nd place, and €25 for 3rd place, and all fancy-dress participants will be presented with a medal after the parade in St. Columba’s centre.
